I was talking to an lawyer about this topic and she said (she`s not an copyright lawyer) that it might be that the companys (mainly Italian/French) who made the copyright registration made a mistake by registering the work under it`s international title not under its original name therefore the registration might not be valid (in the USA)
But she also said that "this is extremly thin ice" since the USA also accepts the international copyright law

So it might be save to sell those titles in the USA, as long as you stay in the USA, but as soon as you leave the country you might end up in jail :)
